Either way, I would just clean it and not replace it.
FWIW 11/03 build date here and I had the old design.

Also, I will second the notion of reusing the old tube after a thourough cleaning. Mine wasnt clogged at all but had some build up. After a good soaking ithe build up had dissolved and I expect it should be trouble free until the next CCV failure.
